A charming island of palm-fringed beaches and colonial-style architecture

Aruba – an exotic paradise located deep in the southern Caribbean Sea. Even though the island is just 20 miles long, it offers so much – from secluded beaches, natural rock formations and coral-encrusted shipwrecks to chic resorts, adventure sports and glitzy casinos. The pristine beaches and year-round sunshine make Aruba a popular destination for both families and honeymooners.

  • You'll find the finest beaches on the south and west coasts – powder soft sands and calm waters
  • Head to the east for the rugged Windward coast with its limestone coves and desert scenery
  • Head to Ariok National Park for hiking trails to witness abandoned gold mines, ruins and ancient paintings and fossils
  • Below the hurricane belt in the Southern Caribbean, Aruba benefits from year-round sunshine
  • Stroll around Oranjestad to take in the unmistakingly Dutch colourful colonial buildings
